Free Testing Offered After Possible Infection Outbreak

Last updated on Wednesday, October 3, 2007

(BLOOMINGTON) - Free testing is being offered to more than 1800 patients who may have been infected with a disease while undergoing surgery between 2004 and 2006 at the Bloomington Surgery Center.

Testing for hepatitis c, hepatitis b and HIV is being offered.

A review was triggered by an Indiana State Department of Health finding last year that an anesthesiologist at the center had used the same syringe on multiple patients.
